J. Stevens Arms model 520 question...
I was recently gifted one of these shotguns, it has the "2 hump" style receiver. I believe, if the internets didn't lie to me, that the "2 hump" type receiver was phased out to the one hump in 1920? I have no sentimental attachment to this shotgun, I gifted a friend a Turkish mauser a couple of years ago as he was fond of it and I paid $50 for it. He inherited this shotgun, did not want it and offered it up. It functions great, I am considering having the barrel cut down to 20" for a home defense gun. How durable would this shotgun be re: holding up to modern 00 or 000 defense ammo?
